Mentor Doula Chris and Certifying Doula Liz with laboring mom working together to help mom stay focused and prepare for transition
Happy Mom and Dad with their birthing team, Doulas Chris and Amanda, Nurse Tori and Midwife Charina ♥
"For every Mother, there shall be a Doula." When we look around as women, wives, and especially as expectant mom and doulas- we see other pregnant mothers everywhere.
For this reason, Doulas of CNY personally mentors each newly trained, aspiring doula. A mentor that will help you start, maintain and build your doula career with important and essential steps. Guiding you on initial visits, prenatal visit, birth strategizing with clients, and moving along in your journey .It isn't a 'program', it is personal, according to your needs; you go at your pace.
Our seasoned doulas are always elated when an aspiring doula joins our agency and begins her doula path. Monthly doula meetings, we share our experiences, births and network together within the community to provide families with the best birthing experiences possible.
"Mentoring with a certified doula boosted my confidence. Once I observed a birth, I felt so ready to be on my own but I lacked confidence. I attended a birth with Chris and another with Michele and they let me take control. They stood back and observed me in action. They both gave me great feedback and the boost I needed to take clients on my own. Mentoring with a certified doula gives you a unique, empowering experience as a budding doula." --Holly S. Certified Birth Doula
"Mentoring is about guiding and leading. It is not taking the certifying doula by the hand, it is gently showing her the way in your spirit, your voice and the way you treat your moms, dads and families. Sometimes it IS about having her being on her own, perhaps making a decision, and then the mentor doula encouraging her on." --Chris, Certified Birth doula since 2001
Our hope is that each mother can have a Doula by her side. If this is something you are aspiring to do, please contact us to start your journey. You will be so amazed and glad that you did.
